Creamed Honeys for sale

 Here's a treat - two nice condition Creamed Honeys which by coincidence have both been emailed to me in the last couple of days-
NOW SOLD This one is a 7'11 x 21 x 2 1/2 diamond tail, shaped by Kevin Cross and dating to around 1975, really good condition by the look of it ; Rick the seller says the discolouration on the deck is just the old wax so will clean up a treat. He says it has a tiny ding on the point of the tail, (really tiny) but otherwise tidy.
The board is in Wandsworth ,London but Rick will travel over to Croyde or Kimmeridge regularly on good swells. A quality board, offers to rickwoollard@mac.com .






 NOW SOLD Robert is selling this Creamed Honey 7'2 x 19 1/2 , this is an early one, numbered no.136 and before the 'shaped by Kevin Cross' decal was used, so circa 1973 ? It has a couple of repaired dings as shown and a couple of minor pressure marks but is in very good nick overall, and has the unusual arrow artwork on the underside. Also you don't see many Creamed Honeys with original fibreglass fins, almost all of them are wooden. The board is in Aberdare,South Wales .A rare ealy shape, offers to ro-jones@talk21.com .

  1. I bought a creamed honey board off a guy in the 90s for 20 quid which was under his caravan in Perransands. Took it to Bathsheba in Perranporth fixed her up and she flew.
    Once I took her to St Agnes and a posy lifeguard stopped me implying that I must be a kook with a board like that.I ignored the guy told him I was from Thurso paddled out and had the most beautiful bottom turn I can remember. The good old days, then she got pinched from under my caravan such is life.
